    Owned by proton - but use toyota motors. It was a play on the alleged chev motors in commodores idea.

    I prefer the debadged look but seriously, who the hell cares what badge people put on their cars.

    The whole chev badge on commodores is so the driver can be unique and stand out amongst the rest. lol
    I myself have a GM badge on the front of my car because its slimline and adds depth to the grill, as stated
    above though. Each to their own, but prepare to be judged.

    My car is debadged except for the grille, and it's now black.

    Again, each to their own.

    There seem to be about 25% of Commodores in SW Sydney that are Chev'd up, the rest wear their original badges. I haven't yet seen another sedan or wagon without badges, so there must not be many

    Its a conspiracy! Sell Australia's favourite family car with a big arse, dinner plate size chrome badge on the front, then make some extra dollars selling after market chevy badges. Ah Holden you are a clever little cookie!
